2008 Pontiac G6 2.4 61.7k miles Sign In

Hello everyone,

I have a CEL on and I took it to AutoZone for a free diagnostic. I just recently bought the car, 3 days ago but i bought it as is. The error code it gave me was P0013 Exhaust Camshaft Position Actuator Solenoid

Now I have been looking into this, but i cant seem to find the solenoid part so i can change it. I am new to fixing cars but from what i have found, its not a hard part to change. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction on what to fix first or what to look for?

Thanks in advance.

The full readout of P0013 was Camshaft Position actuator solenoid fault, the ecm has detected or short circuit condition in the CMP actuator solenoid. Probable cuase open or short circuit condition, failed cmp actuator solenoid.

And the solenoid to replace should be below that eletrical component?

That is the solenoid.

so it is the sensor on top that is the solenoid, not the Oil Control Valve?

You can't post links here.

It was the right solenoid but that one was for the intake side. I don't know if they are the same for exhaust.

They do actually, I have found the parts on a AC Delco site.
